‘Required reading’ in Sufi circles for the last six and a half centuries, this is the
only readily accessible version of this key work in a Western language.
‘Thanks be to God,’ says the 14th century author in his introduction, ‘who has…
delivered us from all useless and superfluous talk…’
True to his word A Glossary of Sufi Technical Terms
is both concise, and brimming
with ideas. It provides explanations of the concepts and terminology used in Sufi works.
It is an invaluable work of reference, which may also be read as a continuous text. Both
the annotated translation and the original Arabic are presented in this edition.
